In 1971, Archer Blood was the Consul General who sent a famous dissent cable, signed in Dhaka 20 members of the U.S. Consulate General, prompted by the Pakistani military’s operations. The cable charged: “Our government has failed to denounce the suppression of democracy. Our government has failed to take forceful measures to protect its citizens while at the same time bending over backwards to placate the West Pakistan-dominated government.”
